Community Q&A on the Adopted School Budget

The Chappaqua PTA will be sponsoring two Q&A budget sessions for community members to learn more about the 2015-16 budget, which was adopted at the April 15th Board of Education meeting.  At each session, Superintendent Lyn McKay and Assistant Superintendent for Business John Chow will be on hand to present a brief overview of the adopted budget.  Please join us on Wednesday, April 29th, at 9:30am or 7:30pm.  Both sessions will be held in the Seven Bridges Lower Commons.  Sessions will not be taped for later viewing.


VOTE AT THE HORACE GREELEY HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM – Designated voter parking spots near the gym will be available.

 Please join together with your fellow school district residents to cast your vote on the school district budget and to fill one seat on the Chappaqua Board of Education.  All budget presentation materials and the 2015-2016 School Budget Book are available on the CCSD website.  The Chappaqua PTA Executive Committee has unanimously endorsed the budget process and the budget itself as being both educationally and fiscally responsible. 

 Ballot Proposition about Greeley Cafeteria Renovation

There will be a proposition on the this year’s ballot asking voters to authorize the CCSD to transfer no more than $600,000 from the School Lunch Fund to the Capital Fund for the purposes of renovating and replacing equipment at the Greeley cafeteria.  Monies in the School Lunch Fund can be used only for expenditures relating to the food services program (e.g., equipment, furniture, renovations).  This proposition will have no impact on the school budget in any way, nor does it affect the tax levy or tax rates.  Please CLICK HERE to read frequently asked questions & answers about this proposition.

Did you miss the Chappaqua PTA Spring Meeting?  

Peter H. Johnston, an educational researcher and consultant to the CCSD, gave a presentation entitled "Opening Minds & Changing Lives."  The ways we engage children in literacy and learning, and the language we choose in our interactions with them, influence many aspects of their development, including their social relationships, their intelligence, their self-regulation, and how they handle uncertainty and diversity. Dr. Johnston's talk demonstrated how apparently small changes in the ways we approach learning and language can change children’s persistence and their academic and social futures.  Click here for more information.
